Citrix Provisioning Service 6.1 Target Device hotfix lnstall guide

Important Note: Target Device hotfixes can be deployed only on the Master Target Device. You can install Target Device hotfix on a device that has not been imaged to a vDisk as a fresh installation, or on a device that has been imaged to a vDisk as an upgrade installation.

For fresh installations, see eDocs, the Citrix product documentation library.

For upgrade installation, complete the following steps:

  • Start from the vDisk in Private or Shared Image Mode.
  • Right-click My Computer, and select Manage. The Computer Management window appears.
  • Under Storage, click Disk Management.
  • Get the drive letter of the local hard disk (Disk 0) from where the vDisk was created. Ensure the partition is Active.
  • Run the Image Builder utility on the target device. The utility is located at Program FilesCitrixProvisioning ServicesBNImage.exe
  • Under Destination Drive, specify the drive letter of the local hard disk from Step 4.
  • Click Build to start vDisk image cloning to the local hard disk on the Master Target Device, then restart.
  • Configure the Master Target Device to start from local hard drive.
  • On the Master Target Device, uninstall Provisioning Services from ARP.

Installing a Target Device Hotfix and Imaging New vDisk

  • From the Provisioning Services Console, delete the Master Target Device.
  • On the Master Target Device, run the Provisioning Services Device installer included in the hotfix.
  • Run the Provisioning Services Imaging Wizard to create new vDisk.
  • After the image is created but before restarting the device, check the Device properties on the Console to ensure the device is set to start from Hard Disk.
  • Restart the device and configure it to start from local hard drive then perform a PXE boot of the device. This will cause the system to automatically start running Citrix Converter to finalize VDisk imaging.
  • On the Console, modify the Device properties to force the device to start from vDisk.
  • Restart the Master Target Device and ensure that the new vDisk is running without issue.
  • On the Console, associate the new vDisk with other Target Devices if necessary.
